THE MUSHROOM MOBILE

I travel coast-to-coast with my travel buddy Bryce to bring Everyday Magic™ right to you. In my former life I toured musicians around the country, but now I’ll teach you everything functional superfoods and mushrooms have to offer. I’m stocked with plenty of mushroom cups to serve you tasty drinks from, the mushroom night light on, and mushroom wall hooks waiting for your jacket, and I’m always ready to hit the open road. ‘Shroom ‘Shroom!

The Mushroom Scooter

I'm Mauri's sister, and you'll see me cruising around LA with my BFF Bryce Summer 2021! I was born in Singapore, moved to LA this year. I speak Mandarin, Finnish, and English. I never skip my breakfast of Mushroom Coffee with an extra scoop of Adaptogen Blend (LA traffic is stressful!), and a boost of electricity to fuel my day. Shroom ... wait in traffic ... Shroom ....

I am a recent transplant to Southern California after 20 years in the Tar Heel state. I love the sunshine, the beach, nearby mountains, and active lifestyle.  I spend my free time baking, hiking, or playing tennis. I professionally grew up in Big CPG, but moved to the natural, organic and wellness world over a decade ago. I like to start each day with a cup of Lion's Mane coffee before I turn on the lights.

Briana

Briana 🕺

Senior Customer Support Manager

Connecting with others and geeking out over health, wellness and mushrooms is my thing. I'm also always doing whatever I can to keep our customers happy, even if that involves suiting up in my jetpack and hand delivering a package across the globe. I’m always reading at least 4 books at once, and can’t live without hiking or cilantro.

Brit

Brit 👣

Chief of Staff

I’m California born and grown, with some short stints in Costa Rica, Ecuador, and UK. I feel my best outdoors—in the ocean or the mountains—where you can find me surfing, rock climbing, snowboarding, or camping. Mushroom Cacao with Reishi is my fav drink, obsessed with anything matcha, and found randomly breaking into half moon pose.

Brittany

Western Regional Sales Manager

Homegrown Missouri farm girl turned Los Angeles native. My childhood chores consisted of feeding the chickens and letting the horses out to pasture. I love hiking and anything forest related, expensive grocery stores, sushi and people with wellness oriented lifestyles. Couldn’t live outside a major city but can’t live without a monthly trip to the mountains.

Bryce

Bryce 👁

Retail Brand Activation Manager

I was born and raised in the Reno/Tahoe basin. I am an artist, I grew up in a family of artists. I love everything that has to do with nature and color. I was raised on snow skiing and mountain air in the winter. Then during the summer I was total lake rat. You would only find me in the water or behind a boat wakeboarding or water skiing. For the last six years I have been on a healing journey from a traumatic accident that changed the course of my life. Mushrooms along with plant medicine have played a major role in my recovery process. I feel very blessed to work with this company and to be a part of the mushroom movement.

Connie 🌼

Social Media Coordinator

If you’re wondering what I’m doing, I’m likely in LA trying to find something amazing to eat or plotting what I want to cook up next. I find joy in strolling the aisles of grocery stores, being active and being outside in the natural world! Mushrooms have had a huge presence in my family and I love that this is now my 9-5

Danielle

Danielle 👩‍🍳

Omni-Channel Education Manager

California roots, Colorado based, and an international soul. As a Registered Herbalist (AHG), Holistic Nutritionist, and Instructor of Mycology, my passions all blossom from the natural world. I believe fungi are the most important teachers on our planet, silently guiding us towards a world of more connection with each other, the earth, and the answers we need to solve many of Earth’s problems. In my free time, you can find me anywhere outside—whether under the sun or stars, summer heat or winter snow. I’ll either be gardening, cooking plant-based recipes, rock climbing, hiking, skiing, surfing, or scuba diving. My favorite color yellow sums me up: full of fire, bright as light, and brimming with energy. You can read my full bio here.

Senior Consumer Engagement Manager

1 of very few people born in Wyoming, I now call Denver home. Trained as a Registered Dietitian, I fell down the content marketing rabbit hole, and haven't looked back. I believe in using our words and actions to help create a better food system, reading as much as possible, and breaking really good sourdough bread with friends. Odds are I'm currently listening to a podcast, trying to keep crumbs off my keyboard, and sippin' 'shrooms.

I am a New Yorker and a mom who was born and raised in Finland. I love mornings, sunrise and quality time with my little angel. Because I’m a hardcore foodie and a mushroom lover, you can usually find me spending hours in the kitchen every day. Due to my character of keeping up super high speed and never sitting down, my favourite mushroom is Reishi to help me chill out!

In my free time, my wife and I pretend to be Chip and Joanna Gaines with our never ending DIY Projects (demo day rocks).

With a degree in Nutrition & Exercise Physiology, I love geeking out about the potential of the human body.

When I’m not sipping on Lion’s Mane, you can find me hiking, camping, and frolicking in the mountains with my husband, and lion dog.

Kristy

Kristy 😻

Wholesale Manager

As a native Austinite (Texan) I have now made peace with winter and consider MN my new home. One way I keep balance in my life is to keep my camera close at hand to capture the beautiful wildlife that abounds here. I love taking walks in nature, filling up my bird feeders, reading Rumi, hugging Angel my 17-year-old kitty, and of course drinking my morning cup of Chaga Elixir.

Lauren

Lauren 🙃

Customer Support Representative

As a New Yorker I’m always searching for calm amongst the chaos. I love spending time with family and can always be found close to home. On Summer weekends I often escape to the Adirondacks with my paddleboard to connect with nature. Functional mushrooms and herbs have become an integral part of my life, especially Reishi mushroom and Tulsi which are a must to keep me feeling calm. I also make an exceptional oat milk matcha latte with cinnamon to kickstart the morning followed by a rebounder workout. I have a passion for helping others and enjoy listening to customer experiences, educating and sharing our world of ‘shrooms and adaptogens.

Liz

Liz 🌻

Senior Creative Manager

Creating meaningful design is my passion and using my skills to help improve the lives of others is a blessing. When I'm not designing, you'll find me exploring the city of Columbus, out walking or at the park with my polar bear of a dog, heading to a farmers or flea markets, or enjoying a brewed beverage —whether that's a fresh cup of mushroom coffee or an ice cold kombucha!

Markus

Markus 🌪

Chief Brand Officer

An active reishi drinker who enjoys all things marketing. Also referred to as a computer wizard, but still denying being one. Loving the idea to make mushroom drinking cool, which these ingredients totally deserve. Nothing beats great coffee and relaxing weekend getaways (yup, I am based in NYC). My two best friends are my barely working camera, and worn out meditation pillow.

Megan

Megan 🏕️

Senior Accountant

Growing up mostly in North Carolina, I realized the blue ridge mountains were not quite big enough, and found my way over to a small mountain town in Colorado at 7,000 ft elevation. I enjoy hiking, camping, rafting, mountain biking, downhill and backcountry skiing right in my backyard! When I'm not in the great outdoors, you can find me cuddling my border collie mutt Bailey, and dominating my husband and friends at board game nights.

Mikael

Mikael 🐂

Executive Director

I was born and raised in Finland, however, my dark pigment comes from my African-born dad. My biggest passions are sports, traveling, health food and world politics. Specifically ice hockey, rugby and tennis are close to my heart and I'm always ready for a burpee challenge. At Four Sigmatic, I'm most proud of being able to help people with our products whether it's smaller things like sleep problems or more severe health problems like brain related challenges or auto-immune issues. I could hang out in health food stores all day long, even though consumer shows are at the top of my best work tasks. Outside of the USA, work usually brings me to Canada, The UK or Scandinavia. Come and say hi if you see me around, and you might be lucky to get a free product as I always carry one!

Born and raised in LA, I have spent much of the past decade working on Wall Street in NYC and health/wellness in Santa Monica. I'm a huge sports fan - you can also find me hanging around town with family, splashing water at the pool/beach, or making bogeys at the local golf course.

Loves all sports and will never decline a hockey game invite or shred session in the snow.

Roberta

Roberta

Senior Graphic Designer

Currently roaming the mountains of Colorado with my wolf dog, though nothing quite gets me like the smell of salty ocean air. I love a modern take on a classic font, clean lines, and anything patinated by time. When I’m not scrambling up a mountain, you’re likely to find me experimenting with gluten-free baking, with a 90’s sitcom playing in the background, and NPR on at the same time.

Roz

Roz 🍊

I am beyond excited by innovations in wellness and love to spread the joy of healthy living to others in my community.

Just a small town girl…. I grew up in Rural Iowa, where my family was farm-to-table before it was cool. After college, I moved Denver, and have called it home for the past 10 years. I love our 300 days of sunshine and our bluebird skies! In my free time, you can find me sweating at hot yoga, or in a spin class, and I will never turn down an opportunity to Karaoke (or as my friends call it, Terioke).

Yemi

Yemi 🎸

Direct Response Copywriter

I was born in Michigan (Go Blue!), grew up in Southern California, and spent a decade in Texas. I now live in Kentucky, so it's quite likely that you'll hear me say "y'all" and "dude" within a 30 second span. I'm a curious, eclectic personality, which is reflected in my musical tastes and reading selections. Thanks to my Mom, I'm HUGE into natural health solutions. Joining the Four Sigmatic team only made sense. I LOVE sauces (evidenced by the 3 types of honey mustard in my fridge). I'm a husband to a brilliant and dazzlingly beautiful lady named Crystal Dawn, and we're a blended family with 9 children, ranging in age from 20 to 6. When I'm not writing to our customers, you can find me teaching myself guitar or reading marketing campaigns...a cup of matcha with Lion's Mane in my hand. 

Zach 🤞

Senior Acquisition Manager

I am a classic rainy state transplant chasing the California ideals of sunshine and waves. You can usually find me wandering around the westside of Los Angeles in my Birkenstocks with an iced coffee in hand. My two boys keep our home full of life and active. Most weekends I am in a gym watching a basketball tournament of some sort. My wife is the real star athlete of the family having played basketball and golf in college. If you haven't figured it out by now, my other full-time occupation is sports dad. And all four of us are keenly obsessed with Peanut Butter Plant-Based Protein.
